Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The nose shows lovely lemon and peach. The palate is ripe, rich and balanced. The wild yeast and lees stirring together with malolactic fermentation have produced a dry wine with complexity, depth and a rich texture.

Made with 100% wild yeast fermentation, 95% in stainless tank with 5% in older French oak. The grapes were gently pressed and racked to tanks and kept warm to allow the indigenous yeast to start the fermentation, which continued at a relatively warm temperature (20c) and took about eight weeks. This has produced added weight and texture. Once the fermentation was complete the wine was lees stirred (battonage) in tank on a weekly basis to help provide roundness and depth of flavour.

The Mendoza grapes for this Chardonnay are from our own Chaytors Road vineyard, the vintage was ideal and the grapes were picked in perfect condition with both moderate acidity and fruit sugar levels. The grapes flavours on the vine showed great intensity with lovely citrus notes and we have captured this in the finished wine."
90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Elegantly styled and inviting, the bouquet shows rockmelon, nectarine, citrus and nougat characters with subtle oatmeal and hazelnut notes. The palate offers lovely weight and creamy texture, nicely complemented by bright fruit flavours and well-pitched acidity. Very smooth and comforting. At its best: now to 2020."
